This video posted on YouTube that PIX11 brought to your attention this week shows a six-year-old in a white coat beating up a seven-year-old wearing  black coat, she doesn’t want to fight but a group of teenagers egg them on until she is left with no other option.

Authorities have identified everyone in the video, and police tell PIX11 the incident in fact did begin as a frenzy over candy being shared. During that frenzy the 12-year-old sister of the girl in the black coat made contact with another girl – at some point afterwards her crew and the victim crossed paths at this library just steps from Edgar Allan Poe park in the Bronx.


A 17-year-old instigated the fight saying let’s settle this outside and they went to the park. Police say the voice heard in this video is that of the 17-year-old.

Once in the park, the 12-year-old girl’s punishment was to have to watch them beat her sister who was threatened by the other teenagers with a beat down if she interfered.

Police say at least one person, possibly two, will be arrested in connection to the fight.

    This is a DISGUSTING display of character!! I am from the Bronx and it absolutely brakes my heart to see how much worse it has gotten out here! to see that now the very people that are suppose to protect the young from such things and teach them to respect their fellow peers are the ones teaching them the very behavior that will lead them to fail, and instead lead them to be as nothing more then the products of their environment… But I am a mother and I am familiar with just how bad the youth are and I TRULY HOPE that that the individuals involved ESPECIALLY the 17 year old is dealt with accordingly even more so like an adult! Because she chose to act "grown" … then send her to where she deserves to go for endangering the lives of those children! JAIL!!! along with the rest of the teenagers involved! they need to be punished!! for forcing two little girls to fight as if they were dogs!! and get those 2 babies the counseling and help they deserve!
